Nashville Crush – Crush Cancer!

On July 16, 2011 at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel, Nashville, l’Eté du Vin will present “Nashville Crush.”  Starting at 5:30 PM, the kickoff event for the evening will be the “First Crush” Wine Tasting.  This event, designed for all levels of wine enthusiasts, is a way for guests to learn about the wines directly from the wineries.  This year the featured wines include: Krug, Newton, Numanthia, and Cloudy Bay.  Wines that attendees will be enjoying include: Krug: Grande Cuvée, Newton: The Puzzle, Newton: Unfiltered Chardonnay, Cloudy Bay: Te Koko, Numanthia: Termanthia, Numanthia, and Cheval des Andes.

“The new design of the auction has something for everyone, yet keeps the original vision of l’Eté du Vin in a direct light” said Pam Taylor, 2011 l’Eté du Vin Auction Chair.  “This year, the auction committee felt that combining the events into one evening gave everyone the chance to tailor the evening into what they wanted while combining the core elements that have consistently made this event great.”

“We are beginning a new chapter in the life of l’Eté du Vin. The new format for the auction is just the beginning of changes to come so keep an eye on our website for exciting new events throughout the year. We want everyone in Nashville to enjoy wine while helping Crush Out Cancer,” says Board President, Diane Madison-Jammal.
